When I install MS office 2007 through wine ( I followed the wine setting before), it detected a setup error: A required Z:\media\USB\Office Enterprise 2007 DVD\Access.WW\OSETUP.DLL cannot be loaded. This may indicate that the file is missing or damaged.

What is the problem?

  • Are you trying to install Access? Access won't work well under wine. If you need the other stuff to run. PlayOnLinux is by far the easiest way. – MadMike Oct 31 '13 at 6:04
  • I am sure you already know about this and have specific reasons for wanting to install office 2007 but in case someone comes here through google: 1. microsoft let you use their office programs online through a browser now (for a fee) 2. you can use libreoffice for free instead of microsoft office and it's fully linux + windows compatible – Rabbit Nov 24 '18 at 17:19

One solution might be to try installing through PlayOnLinux.


I had success installing and using Office 2007 that way.

  • Since I have no Dvd rom in my computer, I tried to use usb installation, but it cannot work. – user209737 Oct 31 '13 at 6:16
  • If you have an ISO file on the USB, I believe that PlayOnLinux can install from that. You would just need to mount the image. – mrm Nov 1 '13 at 0:47
